Sandy’s legacy in the Shoals community will be felt long after her passing. The impact one person can have is like a pebble in the water, one initial ripple multiplies one hundred fold until it touches everyone. Sandy worked with DSI clients and staff for more than thirty years and will be greatly missed. Sandy acted from the heart and the actions of compassion, caring, understanding and humor leave a lasting impact on family and friends. Sandy leaves us with the challenge to love and care for each other and cherish each moment.
